With his distinct bass tone, Christopher Brown has pleased audiences for more than two decades with his repertoire of musical stories. Chris’ special view of the world is portrayed honestly and humorously through his innovative, story-telling lyric, enlivened by a unique blend of folk, country and rock & roll. A reviewer recently wrote, “his sound might best be described as James Taylor meets Johnny Cash.”
Chris calls his new album “Characterist”. That’s because he is not only a singer/songwriter, but an artist/illustrator who can capture a subject’s essence through caricature. With a few strokes, he reveals hints of a character’s nature or temperament, their mystery or charm. He does the same thing with lyric and melody, outlining and shading characters and moments, even yearnings and states of mind. His deep rumble of a voice can be as direct as an approaching train, yet warm and forgiving.
Chris will be joined by master guitarist and composer Peter Calo.
